1) Ben's pants are on fire! And I'm guessing Juliet's are, too. That seemingly untrustworthy she-devil obviously seems to be a part of a bigger plan by Ben to get Jack to trust someone, but Jules at least was telling the truth when she said this: Ben is a liar, and a dangerous man. We've known this from the first day we laid eyes on the artist then known as Henry Gale, when his captor, Rousseau, warned, "Know this. He will lie. A long time. He will lie." Nutty Frenchy-poo wasn't so nutty after all, was she?
2) Speaking of Nutty Frenchy-poo, we will begin to see more of her daughter, Alex, next week, who will have a substantial role this season, and slowly, the revelation of why The Others have abducted so many children. Gaa! And speaking of...
3) Crazy theory of the week: If Juliet and some of the other Others really do want to kill Ben, why haven't they just done it? Well, what if that little girl we were supposed to see in Jack's room in the season premiere (the one ABC had a photo of on the media site) is Juliet's daughter? Is Ben somehow holding her, and other children, hostage (a la Walt) as a way to keep the parents under his creepy little thumb? Discuss in the comments below!
4) Patchy McPatchalot (a k a the Sleestak) seen in the hatch video is not someone we have met, nor heard of before. But we may have already seen a part of him! Don't forget that last season, the Tailies found a glass eye. Coinkindink? I think not! It's also safe to assume that Patch is at the Flame station, given that the others are taken or destroyed, and the Arrow and the Staff didn't have computer equipment (at least that we've seen).
Coming up: Kate and Sawyer do it! Sorry, but if you Jaters had any doubt on whom Kate will "choose," I think the promo of next week of Sawyer and Kate ripping each other's clothing off should give it all away. Come to momma. I'll hold you.
Also, Jack does operate but I wouldn't worry about Ben going anywhere (Michael Emmerson is a series regular) and Locke picks up Eko's cross--and spiritual journey-- while a certain TV diva vows to wear black for the rest of the season to mourn her beloved SexAAA loss.
